Nice! I was in Loveland, CO (confirming the tenet that thrift stores in upscale-communities are the best) in June and saw a great find. A Weber Smoky Joe grill in pristine shape for $10. In fact, they had 2. Some lucky soul got a serious SCORE(S).

My favourite department stores. The speciality I look for is Tupperware. Not just any old plastic, but genuine Tupperware.

As an ex dealer (for more than a decade), I know both its price and value. I now mostly pick it up for pennies in the dollar. At home, as well as in my vans, all my food is kept in Tupperware.

I used to prowl thrifts looking for high dollar glassware and marbles, most of which brought good money on eBay.
Don't have the room for it now tho.
We still find great deals on other things we need.
